SX/4 Hatch Seal ? from Matt "Tapes" Steck
« on: September 12, 2013, 02:08:49 PM »
Matt originally posted this question of FB.

I have a question for SX/4 owners. How does the hatch seal attach on yours? My trunk area has a raised metal lip that the weather stripping pushes onto. The seal I got from Blazer AMC has no slit to with which to push it on. They tell me it's just supposed to use it's own sponginess to push down into a groove around the hatch. Well, that's fine for the sides, but there's nothing to keep it put around the latch. It also interferes with the alignment pin.

Responses so far:
Matt 'Tapes' Steck I'm just trying to figure out who's crazy here.

Matt 'Tapes' Steck Sorry, it's Blaser AMC.

Mikey Amc Dragster 3M/2side tape it into place

Matt 'Tapes' Steck I thought of that, but it would still interfere with the pin. I'll take some photos.

Cory Dey Cut to fit?

Matt 'Tapes' Steck They said no glue or tape. If it's made for an SX/4 it should go on without any mods.

Doug Shepard Watching this with interest as I had thought about getting one of their hatch seals. I also posted it at the Den for you
